You Get What You Concentrate On - Why Not Become an Eternal Optimist?

Excerpt from Chapter 4 - Basic New Age Spirituality

This implies that to get love, you need to concentrate on love. To get fewer negative things, you need to concentrate less on them. This has strong applications concerning our fears ands worries; the fears and worries we concentrate on tend to draw more of these unwanted experiences to us!

The typical pessimist gets more disasters because he/she is a pessimist. Could this be why the eternal optimist, Ronald Reagan, eternally confounded the opposition with his "good luck"? It wasn't luck at all, for he got what he concentrated on!

Rarely are right-wing Republicans or left-wing Democrats happy folks, precisely because both groups concentrate on unhappy things.

The right-winger who tends to religiosity may see evil everywhere, may find himself "needing" weapons for "defense" and be outraged if you do not agree with what he knows to be "right and just." He gets many so-called "evil" people and experiences in his life.
